WE54 Magnesium Alloy
Magnesium Heat Treatable High Strength Casting Alloy
WE54 Magnesium alloy is a casting alloy which maintains its mechanical properties at high temperature (up to 300°C).
WE54 offers a high performance product for engineers who require weight reduction without compromising performance. The machinability of WE54 is excellent and the alloy offers similar corrosion resistance to aluminium casting alloys under salt spray conditions. WE54 is used commonly in Aerospace, Defence and Motorsport applications as a high performance, weight reducing material.
WE54 Magnesium Alloy is a high strength heat treatable alloy which offers good castability. The inclusion of Yttrium offers improved corrosion resistance and has generally excellent property retention.
